Do you remember when you were little and didn’t understand why adults talked so much about weather? What’s so interesting about the forecast? Now, I talk about weather all the time and routinely check my iPhone for an hour-by-hour report (that’s not too much, right?). We’re smack in the middle of some April showers at the moment and though we didn’t expect yesterday’s thunderstorm, I’m grateful it’s washing off the pollen from my car. Who else can’t wait for May flowers?
We’re not trying push spring aside, but we do love the summery freshness of Emily’s Key Lime Pie inspiration board. Refreshing, no?
We just love that our intern, Anna shared her experience at the Old South Ball, Kappa Alpha’s fraternity formal. She rocked a hoop skirt and all!

Emily’s told us all about the venues and the rentals for her wedding earlier. This week, we got to see it come together as she shared her vision for her reception style.
Emily’s Southern Spotting is always so adorable! We love these muslin biscuit bags that are tagged with the bride’s grandmother’s recipe.
Marissa’s already married, but you know that wouldn’t stop us from dreaming up some bridal shower inspiration for her! See what Sierra put together here.
This week’s featured Real Wedding Gallery is Whitney + John! Their mountain wedding was complete with touches from family and friends and, of course, that good ole Southern barbecue.
